Since we humans are unquestionably the
most social and culturally complex species on the planet we generally
love all things social ie; politics, religion, romance, family,
television, radio, shopping, holidays, plays, dancing, concerts,
games, and last, but certainly not least, one on one communications.
Our love for communications is evident
everywhere we look. We use magazines, papers, TV, radio, computers,
satellites, textbooks, billboards and even smoke signals.
(Demonstrated below by a friend of Christian personals primer.)
Trillions of dollars are spent on communications every year around the
world. In fact communications (all forms) comprise the single largest
industry on the planet.
Communication is the exchange of
information. The new trend in the past fifteen years or so is
developing the information superhighway infrastructure so that we may
communicate even more! Much more. The paradox here is that with
instant global communications we are literally able to “reach out
and touch someone” instantly, yet we are more lonely than ever.
Where is the wisdom we have lost in so much knowledge?
While gaining the ability to
communicate quantitatively we have lost the ability to communicate
qualitatively. We have become mass consumers of communications and
many have lost the ability and or desire to verbalize their deeper
feelings and desires to the ones who matter the most. Hence the advent
of the Christian personals primer.
Two hundred years ago communication was
very limited. The average American was not characterized as lonely in
literature or medicine until about 20 years ago, about the time of the
explosion in communications and information technology.
